So i am working on an idea for cabinet lighting, i would like to use some WS2813 Like this. I would like to run these under my cabinet and on top. I thought about using the pre-made tapes but i think i would like the spacing a bit further apart then what i have been able to find so far.
Trying to figure out how these leds are working i looked for some posts and the data sheets. All the post kept referring to the fastled code, which i took a look at. Then looking at a data sheet it looks like when the data is sent each led takes 24bit's for control. when the data is sent out the first led will it take the first 24 bit for its self and then sends the rest of the data on. So for example if there is 100 led the data that is sent out will be 100 24 bit packets? then there needs to be a small data break for the next series of data?
I just want to make sure i am understanding this correctly?
What i would like to do would be to run the under cabinet and over cabinet all on one data line. What would be a realistic max amount of leds in a single run.
